My very pink card today has been inspired by Barbiemania that has swept around the world in the last few weeks. My favourite colour is pink and this was an easy card for me to create with lots of pink and white layers. To soften all the pink I have used the beautiful Amazing Paper Grace Radiant Navette dies to create a pretty lace background for some gorgeous yellow and blue flowers. Also, I know a lot of people struggle with flower making and do not always have flower shaping paper to make flowers. So today I have created my flowers using a light weight white cardstock and with minimal tools and my fingers and I was very pleased with the result. And of course Barbie is full of bling and sparkle and I had to add some pink iridescent jewels and some sparkle with some glitter.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
For my card I have created a 5″ x 5 1/2″ top folding base card out of white cardstock. I have then layered pink and white cardstock with the top pink layer embossed using the Amazing Paper Grace Orange Peel 3D Embossing Folder from the Home Sweet Quilt collection by Becca Feeken. I have then die cut the lace background out of white cardstock using the Amazing Paper Grace Radiant Navette dies. I then ink blended the plain oval die using Spun Sugar, Saltwater Taffy and Kitsch Flamingo inks before adhering the decorative oval on top. These were all assembled and then added to the front of the card
I have reversed foiled the sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Occasion Sentiments Hot Foil Plate and Coordinating Die using gold foil and die cut the die using the coordinating die. I then die cut three additional plain dies and stacked all together with the foiled sentiment on top. The sentiment was then added to the centre of the decorative oval.
I die cut the yellow flowers using the flower dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month March 2021 – 3D Vignette Mason Jar out of Hammermill cardstock. I have coloured the centres with Lemon Whip and Sunshine inks and then shaped them using a large ball stylus. I finished shaping the flowers by pleating the petals with my fingers. I then assembled the flowers together with two of each size. I added pink iridescent jewels to the centres of the flowers and added the flowers to the bottom right and top left of the decorative oval as shown.
I die cut the leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month March 2021 – 3D Vignette Mason Jar and the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Dies using two different green cardstocks. The long leaves were trimmed and added around the flowers and the smaller leaves were added around the yellow flowers.
I die cut the small blue filler dies using the die from the Amazing Paper Grace Petite Floral Potpourri Dies. I have coloured these flowers using Summer Shower ink and shaped them using a small ball stylus. I added some yellow iridescent jewels to the centres and then added them around the leaves and yellow flowers.
To finish I have added some pink iridescent jewels around the flowers and on the decorative dies.
